Ravi Zacharias

By: Gabriela Yareliz

This week, we mourned a fierce man of faith, and a personal hero of mine, Ravi Zacharias.

He is someone I have quoted extensively and studied with extensively. A man who was determined to reveal faith to the rational mind. A man determined to make us all seekers of truth, in a world slipping into contradicting philosophies.

His passing filled me and many in the world with great sadness. Hard to put that into words. But I wanted to leave you with something he posted, just before he died. What a life well-lived. A life not focused on anything the world offers, but a life focused on the love of God for humanity, and sharing that.

The question he loved to address, was ‘Why Jesus?’ So, I leave you with his response.

Thank you, Ravi. You put everything on the line in the pursuit of truth, and may you be richly rewarded by spending eternity in the presence of the God you shared so beautifully. I will be eternally grateful.
